that in there. this is such an odd situation where the defense explicitly said before the trial stand your ground is not going to be part of this case. and that's because their defense was that george zimmerman was pinned down. >> right. >> unable to escape, even if he wanted. and yet there it is in the jury instruction. and here the jurors are talking about it afterwards. i think that the way stand your ground came in most of all was in george zimmerman's decision to get out of the car, knowing that he was carrying a concealed weapon. and remember, he got an a in the class where he was taught stand your ground and self-defense law. i think in his mind putting it all together, he was not afraid. he was going to follow trayvon martin who he assumed was a criminal, and he was doing that knowing that he was armed and knowing that the law would protect him. and it did. >> since stand your ground has been implemented, the language and the charge in the self-defense case has been changed. you see now the buzz words stand your ground being used in these charges, even though that defense is not be
? >> well, the prosecutor prosecutor plays a role along with the defense in making recommendations to the jury -- to the judge with respect to the jury charge. and to the extent this charge could have been presented in a more plain and understandable fashion, the entire system bears responsibility for that. >> thanks to my legal panel. coming up, juror b29 said zimmerman got away with murder. now calls to change the stand your ground law are getting louder. >>> plus, why attorney general eric holder may be bringing his voting rights fight to north carolina. and bill o'reilly and the right continued the desperate push to change the conversation on race from rap music to chicago violence to preaching about the black family, anything but race. >> the reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the african-american family. >> i'll show you what is behind the desperation. >>> and friend or foe, i want to know. e-mail me at reply al. it's coming up. i'm a careful investor. when you do what i do, you think about risk. i don't like the ups and
their job? >> well, i initially felt that this was probably going to be a defense case because the prosecution just didn't have the evidence. but anybody who watched this network during the trial knows that as time went on, i began to see evidence that the prosecution, they simply weren't arguing and by closing argument they failed to put it together. it's entirely predictable this jury would take the jury instructions the law and try to apply the facts and if they don't fit they have to acquit and what jurors do in every case. >> were you surprised by what she was saying? >> no. this is exactly what i was saying frankly before the verdict this is how it was going to turn out when both sides are arguing reasonable doubt only one possible outcome and that was acquittal. she couldn't put it together. that is the prosecution' job. give them the theory of the case. that didn't happen. they failed to do that and so this was the predictable outcome and i'm so moved by her -- her tension, her conflict that she somehow knows this wasn't the right outcome but it's the one she had to com

defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime and have them converted over by the pressure that had to have been put o
been six iterations of a defense in the irs case. but remember, lois learner disclosed at a conference, that's how we learned about it. then we went into it was two rogue agents, then it went to, well, it was a progressive group so we're targeted to not just conservative groups, so as long as we treat two different sets of people improperly, at least it's not discrimination. now the new defense is, well, the president himself didn't know about it. if that's the new standard for i am -- impropriety in this town, that the president didn't even know about it? >> if they had been denied right at the get-go, then they could have appealed it to another part of the irs. instead, what was so sadistic about this and so painful, they were in this no man's land and they couldn't appeal it. they would have been far better off if the irs agents, whoever was involved in this, however high it went, if they simply said no and denied it so they could appeal it. but instead they strung them out. >> that suggested more culpability, and you're right, it's as if they just gave up. these are average america

, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to
the prosecution failed and the defense succeeded? >> i've said many times the prosecution bungled this case and failed to connect the jury instructions the law she is talking about with the evidence. in my opinion, the evidence was there. but the prosecution essentially asked questions in closing argument having a arguing reasonable doubt like the defense. of course this woman and probably many other jurors as well who is so conflicted and knows in her heart that something is wrong here that an injustice was done but that she was sworn to follow the law as it was given her. they were given 27 pages of confusing jury instructions. they had a prosecutor who didn't connect the dots and didn't give them the evidence to connect it to the jury instructions the way prosecutors do in every other murder case in america every day so this is how it came out. now not only is the martin family, of course, devastated, we heard that on yet another very gracious statement from sybrina fulton, but now the jurors are left feeling guilty and feeling terrible about the outcome of this case. >> now, goldie, thi

in a minute. here's my general question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because we're concerned about civil liberties. >> if you come out what looks to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it we have to be careful how we do that, and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep the american people safer. >> i don't like this. >> trisha: i'm not
by the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration by cutting domestic priorities in order to fund defense. that's unacceptable. he won't sign that. the across-the-board cuts are hurting our future. >> fair enough, but the process in washington over continuing to fund the government or raising the debt ceiling is necessarily a process that has to be engaged in. i guess what i'm asking is, is the president, unlike what he's done before signaling, he will go to the brink this time in order to stop cuts that he thinks will harm the economy? >> what the president did this week is he sent a very clear message that washington has to stop playing these brinksmanship games. it's not about who wins and who loses -- >> but this report, mr. secretary, indicates indeed the white house is setting itself on a position to go to the brink, in order to force republicans -- >> what we have said is congress needs to get its work done and needs to fund the kinds of things the american middle class need, and we need to get the debt limit extended in a way that doesn't create a crisis. that is what every congre

. >> brian, the thing i think links what bill o'reilly said on his program last night and ray kelly's defense of his record is the idea that the best thing you can do for young african-american men, young african-americans in general is have a very intense law and order state that is very aggressive about policing and putting wrongdoers in jail because the victims of those wrongdoers are, themselves, african-american, and you have spent your adult career working in the criminal justice system. my question to you is, does that argument have purchase with you? >> no, it really doesn't. it's a distraction. trayvon martin wasn't killed because he didn't have two parents who loved him. he wasn't killed because of some social deficit or some cultural deficit. he was killed because of a presumption of guilt. all over this country, we're allowing black and brown children to be burdened with the presumption of guilt so they live their whole lives always being suspected. we had the president of the united states acknowledging his own dealings with this presumption of guilt. when anyone says that's not
in the president's big speech today. i heard an offense and i heard a defense. first the obama offense. he sees the economy not getting all that much better this year or later. and doesn't want to be blamed for it. what he wants is a battle, a national debate on the following question. did the people want to persist with the rate of growth we have now with higher than healthy jobless rate that is ebbing only slowly or push for infrastructure spending and other steps that will kick the economy into a higher gear? he wants this debate and he wants to be clearly positioned on one side of it. where the republicans refuse to support the agenda and he the president is seen promoting one. now to the obama defense. he also knows clearly the republican right ramrodded by cruz, paul, and lee are planning a showdown this fall. a manufacturing crisis that risks national default. he the president wants to position himself in the national standup that coming this fall as the leader that wants government to function. his opponents those are the people that want to shut government down. he's admitting the real
and relatively transparent defenses for what this is about, which is people love sex, they love talking about sex, they love talking about other people's sex often more than their own sex lives. any time you can move from the real issues in the new york mayoral race, which includes things like public racial profiling rather than private online profiles, and any time you get off the sewer system and on to somebody's texts, obviously the public is interested. the new york voters are interested, so i get why we're talking about it. they're talking about it. but this is not the criteria of how to choose a mayor. the fact that what we've learned now is what we already knew, is that anthony weiner has this part of his life and it has intersecreta intersected with his public life and voters may pull away from him. you've got "the new york times" and "the new york daily news" saying he should be out of the race. you've got the usual mcaur theist mafia trying to bring him down. what do we know? what we learned is what we learned from st. augustine a long time ago. many people say to their lord, to their s
justify shooting an unarmed person as self-defense. since your state became the first to adopt stand your ground in 2005, the number of what's termed as justifiable homicides tripled from 12 to 35 per year, between 2005 and 2010. that's an increase of 283%. are you hearing us yet, governor?! what are those people outside your office, what they're trying to get you to hear is that it's going to take a lot more than last year's quickly assembled task force to show them that you take their concerns around this law seriously. they want real action, that shows you understand this law is unacceptable and should not be used to justify the death of an unarmed teenager. the problem does not begin with the tragedy that happened to trayvon martin. the problem does not even begin with the actions of george zimmerman. governor, the problem begins and remains with the stand your ground law. sincerely, melissa.

that all the jurors take very seriously in the jury instructions. people include instructions about self-defense justifications based on stand your ground statutes. not liking that law is wrong is very different from refusing to follow it in the jury context. i want to play a little sound that relates to all this. it goes to the profiling question. let's take listen to some of the charged racial language we've heard from some on the right. the notion of race baiting and race hustling has surfaced this week. take a listen. >> there is a hustle going on in the civil rights industry. >> they picked at our highly sensitive race scab. >> black thugs are killing black people. >> who are the real race baiters? >> you want a conversation, you got it. >> you got it. what you see there is a desire to very directly racially profile and discuss the notion of trayvon martin and others, unnamed people responsible for black on black crime. which is a big diversion from the crime that occurred here. >> the bottom line is people don't want to admit that race is an issue. they sarah you're race hustling. the fact
